This past week has been a somewhat busy week...of partying! No, okay no, not really, but last week (April 6) was my brother's birthday. Since we all are in school at the moment, we decided to go out on April 8, which was a Thursday and is also the night when my brother DJ's at a soundbar in China Town called Soho (formally Club Pauahi [which I've played in back in '04 with my band!]) My brother is pretty well known (underground) DJ, and has been around since 1999-ish. Here's an article about him:
(If you're wondering how he got YOGURT, well, way back when, people used to wonder about our last name...Yamilao. They said it reminded them of the yogurt company Yami Yogurt. And there you have it.)
So if you're ever in the Honolulu area, make sure you visit one of Hawaii's finest ;) I'm always proud of my bro!
Okay so back to my blog. My boyfriend (Jacques), my friend (Lani) and my brother's girlfriend (Liz) had a blast celebrating my brothers birthday and enjoying the good music.
Me and my boyfriend :3 (don't mind the darkness in the pic, our friend's finger went slightly over the flash!)
Lani & Liz at the pool table! Workin' the poles! haha!
Me, my bf, my bro & his gf ♥
At the end of our night, we ended up at one of my brother's friend's art studio. I was pretty drunk at this point, so I forgot what his name was, but I do remember his artwork was really cool. I wish I took more pics of his works, but I noticed he liked to mix tribal elements with oriental elements with a hip hop twist to it. Pretty cool. I also liked his studio. It's in a high rise apartment and being there reminded me of the time when me & my friend, Janis went to visit the Academy of Arts in San Francisco when they brought us to the apartments where resident students lived.
OTHER then having a good drunken time, I've been online shopping a lot.
I bought this huge Cecil McBee tote (Rilakkuma wasn't included, this was from my friend Monika-chan who is my Korilakkuma!) The tote came with the May 2010 issue of Seventeen magazine. This tote is huge enough to hold my school books and folders! I ♥ it!
I've also had my eye on this for a while too! I finally got to order it!!! The words to The Beatles' Let It Be. I got it in heather gray/black font though. I still want the words 'let it be' in script underneath my right collar bone. I gotta keep nagging my parents to allow me to have one. Even though I'm old enough to do whatever I want, I still gotta ask permission for things!
I just ordered this Boater Hat. Oh geez, I've been on the hunt for a boater hat since the beginning of this year, and I think because I live in Hawaii, fashion trends don't reach here till like...a year later. I know it's a huge trend in Japan right now especially for the spring season. It's sooo cute I just have to have one! XD
I also ordered this limited edition Rilakkuma (brown ver) iPhone hard case! My friend (Monika), has the Korilakkuma version! And since I am her Rilakkuma, it'd be awesome if I had the Rilakkuma version ;) TEAM KUMACHI! haha.
and LASTLY, I'm (in the midst of) ordering my first pair of circle lenses! I was recommended to a site from pinksugarichigo and I have to say, their prices are very very reasonable! www.dollfront.com!

This style is the 'Nudy Quarter' series. This color is Golden Blue. ME LIKEY! I like how it subtly blends in with the browness of the original eye color. It kind of gives it that gradient effect!

I also want this style in grey! It looks so beautiful and mesmerizing!
I really need to stop shopping for now though!! I need to $ave $ave $ave again X[
